Smiling in Sweet Dreams Tea Party Bear Aceo

How many ways does tea inspire you?  The theme Inspiration Avenue Weekly Challenge this week is Tea!

Sweet Dreams Tea Party Bear ACEO
My time is filled up this week with all kinds of unfun things, so I had just a little while to make the aceo, and as usual, what starts with one idea, meanders to its own tune.  I merely inhabit the same space as the paper and paint.  I'll guess this happens to some of you, too.  I must have been hungry when I painted this card.

He's just a little Teddy Bear who was left on the table when the guests got called in by their mothers.  He's all in a sugar haze from eating the petit fours, fruit tarts, fancy cookies, and more.  All that's left for him to do is sprawl out with a full and sore tummy with the frosting evidence on his forehead, chin, ears, and paws.   If  he's left alone and no one comes to collect him, when he wakes up there'll be room to finish off the cupcakes, if he can scrape the frosting off himself!     The things Teddies get up to when you're not looking...

Oh, that will be one queasy little bear pretty soon! Haven't we all wanted to do that sometimes :) This is so cute and whimsical. Thanks so much for joining the "tea party" at Inspiration Avenue!

Hi Magpie and Shelle, thanks for dropping by. I think he's going to need some Alka-Seltzer! Your comments are making my morning!

Yes, these teddies ... you can never be sure what they are up to ... I know I have quite a few of them (lol). Your aceo is so cute and such a nice little story to go with it.

What a darling story. Just goes to show what a teddy can do if left to his own devices. I'm sure the cupcakes will be gone tomorrow, too! Great IA challenge piece.

Waving to PetraB and Bleubeard and Elizabeth!

Thank you both for your comments, so awesome. Those teddies can charm us even when they have been a little naughty.

Aaaaw!! The expression of contentment on his face does make me smile! And who can blame him for finishing off all those delicious goodies?!

I like the way you think! I left my Teddy once and he did the exact same thing! Naughty bear! 80)

Hi artangel! Thanks for seeing his "angelic" sleepy sweet smile.

Hi Judy! Are they naughty because of us or maybe they're distant cousins!
Thanks for visiting!

Your teddy is so contented, and so adorable! Wonder if his mommy will find him and scold him? I hope not!

Thank you Judy, Grace, and Snoodles!

Teddy thanks you, too! Wipe that icing off your chin.
